LD Lowe Wealth Advisory is proud to announce that Chief Compliance Officer and Client Relations Specialist Lauren Chastant has earned the professional designation of Investment Adviser Certified Compliance Professional (IACCP®).
Started in 2005 and co-sponsored by NRS (National Regulatory Services) and IAA (Investment Advisor Association), the IACCP® designation has been earned by fewer than 1,000 compliance professionals nationwide. To achieve this designation, applicants must undergo a rigorous 18-month curriculum of 20 demanding courses covering compliance, ethics and industry practices.
“Our company culture has always been based on meeting the fiduciary standard – which is soon to be law governing our profession – by providing a superior level of care for our clients,” said Lloyd D Lowe Sr, CEO of LD Lowe Wealth Advisory. “We are so proud of Lauren for her achievement in proving what we already know about her: that she is a top performer committed to working in the best interest of our firm and its clients.”
The program’s primary focus is on the basic foundational knowledge of the compliance professional, providing participants with a comprehensive understanding of the rules and regulations governing the financial services industry, remaining up-to-date with the latest changes and alterations in legislation. The curriculum includes a detailed examination of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, associated state and federal regulations, detailed guidance on the foundation and implementation of a strong compliance program and careful study of industry best practices.
“Achieving the IACCP® designation was difficult and challenging, and I’m very proud to have done it,” said Lauren. “I learned a great deal about our industry and I believe it has positioned me to better serve our clients at LD Lowe Wealth Advisory.”
Lauren joined LD Lowe in 2013 in a part-time role and since then has invested significant time in building her skills and growing in her career. In addition to the IACCP® designation, she holds a Certification in Paraplanner Development (CPP) and earned her life, accident and health insurance license in the state of Texas in 2015.
